How To Walk On Ice

This small info-graphic explains how to walk on ice without slipping, or at least minimising the risk of slipping. I’ve long used the penguin shuffle to walk on ice, which I hate doing. I grew up in a desert sand is much more forgiving to walk on…

How To Choose The Perfect Board Game

This flow chart reads like a wishlist for me… Although I disagree with BSG taking less than two hours to play.

Some of my all time favourites are in there like the afore mention BSG, Game of Thrones, and Risk. As well as some I’ve had a chance to play but don’t own yet like Dominion, and Pandemic and Carcassonne (I still can’t pronounce that).

I’m going to have to go over this and pick out some to buy, also this has reminded me that I need to write a review of Small World.

Metal Gear Solid Risk Board + HD Collection

 

The Metal Gear franchise is one that I will always have a weird feeling about, Metal Gear on the MSX was one of the first games I remember playing, I didn’t actually complete it until a year or so ago though. I’ve never played any of the other Metal Gear games though despite owning/having borrowed them on multiple occasions.

Anyway, I like risk, I like classic risk and I also like the new fangled Risk 2210 and Risk Godstorm games, so there is no reason I won’t like this game. It looks interesting and has artwork by Yoji Shinkawa the art director of the Metal Gear Solid Series.

 

On another note, I just found out that Konami are releasing a Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on the XBOX 360 and PS3. Oddly it only contains MGS 2, MGS 3 and Peace Walker (The PSP game that is supposed to be Metal Gear Solid 5) Why not include the original Metal Gear Solid? Some of us haven’t played that yet!

 

 

On the plus side it does contain the original MSX games Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2. I might play thought MGS on the Playstation and then get this so I can play the others and maybe finally get round to playing Metal Gear Solid 4 which has been sitting on my shelf for 2 and a bit years…

The HD collection is available to pre-order on Amazon, dunno about Risk… Oddly though the links below look like two PS3 links the first should take you to the XBOX 360 one…
